IVF Cyprus

Egg donation in Cyprus is a complex process which success greatly relies on the medical expertise and innovative approach to reproductive medicine and infertility.

Egg donation Cyprus is an alternative path to parenthood for women who cannot conceive with their own eggs. This treatment option successfully bypasses numerous medical conditions in women that interfere with their ability to conceive a child.

What is Egg Donation Cyprus?

Egg donation Cyprus is the process by which a woman (egg donor) donates her eggs (donor eggs) to enable another woman (recipient) to conceive as part of an assisted reproductive treatment. To donate eggs, the egg donor must take fertility medications that will stimulate her ovaries to produce multiple eggs. Once the eggs become fully grown, egg retrieval will be scheduled and performed at the euroCARE IVF clinic in Cyprus. The collected eggs are graded and fertilized in a procedure called ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection). On day 3 or day 5, the best embryo(s) will be transferred to the recipient’s uterus in order to establish a pregnancy.

Sometimes, unfertilized eggs may be frozen and stored for future use. Alternatively, the remaining embryos may be frozen and used in a future IVF cycle.

When IVF with Donor Eggs Cyprus is an Option?

IVF with Donor Eggs in Cyprus is generally recommended in the following cases:

  • Diminished ovarian reserve
  • Ovarian disorder
  • Premature menopause
  • Risk of passing a genetic disease onto the child
  • Turner syndrome
  • Chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • Multiple failed IVF cycles
  • Same-sex couples

Egg Donor Cyprus – Types

  1. Anonymous (unknown) egg donor Cyprus – donors who are unrelated to the recipient and who take part in the egg donation program for altruistic and/or financial reasons.
  2. Designated (known) egg donor Cyprus – friends or relatives who are brought by the recipient to serve as egg donors.

How Does Egg Donation Cyprus Work?

Egg donors are first recruited and screened for any potential genetic disease or medical condition that may affect their fertility or that may put the child at risk. The donor is required to undergo a thorough psychological and physical examination, including a pelvic exam, blood tests to determine the hormone levels, Rh factor and blood type, tests for infectious diseases, an ultrasound test to examine the ovaries, uterus and other pelvic organs of the donor. A family history of the past three generations is also required to make sure that there is no genetic disease running in the family. Genetic testing is also required to ensure that donors do not carry mutations that could be passed on the baby.

Egg donors are selected based on their health state, medical history and physical resemblance to the recipient. Only 1-4% of all applicants will make it to the top.

The selected candidates will sign a legal contract (egg donation agreement) with the recipient. In the egg donation agreement each party will state their intentions and acknowledge their legal rights and responsibilities to each other. The agreement will also clearly state that the donor does not intend to parent or to have legal custody over any resulting child(ren). In case the recipient doesn’t get pregnant the first time, the egg donor may be asked to donate eggs a second time.

Next, egg donors will take a daily dose of fertility medications to stimulate their ovaries to produce multiple eggs. After a few days, egg retrieval will be scheduled and performed at our IVF clinic in Cyprus. The collected eggs will be then fertilized with the father’s or donor’s sperm in our state-of-the-art lab. At this point, an ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) method of fertilization will be applied by which a single sperm cell will be injected into each collected egg to attempt pregnancy.

After several days, the embryo(s) will be graded and the ones that are well developed will be transferred to the recipient’s uterus. Before the transfer takes place, the recipient will have to prepare her uterine lining for the implantation of the embryo(s). The recipient will be recorded as the birth mother of the child.

IVF with donor eggs in Cyprus typically takes three to six weeks.

Egg Donation Cyprus Costs

Couples using donor eggs usually bear all costs. Typically, they pay for their own IVF treatment and for the egg donor cycle, as well as for the medical expenses, including any additional expenses due to complications after the egg retrieval procedure.

Egg Donation Cyprus Success Rates

Younger donors are reported to provide significantly higher pregnancy rates (59.1%, 45.9%, 30.5%, 30.9% and 27.3% for the age groups 20–22 years, 26–28 years, 32–34 years and over 38 years, respectively).

Egg Donation Cyprus Law

Egg donors are usually between the ages of 21 and 34, who are willing to provide eggs to an infertile individual or couple. The age cut-off serves as a guarantee that donated eggs are of high quality. Egg donors are not allowed to donate more than 5 times in a lifetime.

Why Egg Donation in North Cyprus?

Egg donation at euroCARE IVF in North Cyprus is an assisted human reproductive technique in which the donor eggs are fertilized with the sperm for the intended parents. The eggs used in an IVF cycle can be eggs from a donor undergoing ovary stimulation simultaneously with the egg recipient or frozen donated eggs.

Egg donation is an amazing opportunity for couples and singles to move forward on their journey of building a family. IVF with egg donation in North Cyprus is for women whose eggs are not fit for producing a successful pregnancy. Some women have an insufficient egg production, while others produce eggs of poor quality.

With egg donation in IVF Cyprus, euroCARE IVF will help you reach your goals by ensuring that the donor’s blood group is compatible with the couple who is undergoing IVF treatment. Intended parents have the ability to choose an anonymous donor based on certain physical characteristics such as hair, eye and skin color, education, career status and ethnicity.

Our IVF clinic offers egg donation with donors from the UK and overseas. Due to a shortage of donors in the UK, the waiting time can be much longer than that for donors from Cyprus. Donors are typically women of 18-34 years of age with a demanding medical and genetic examination and have undergone thorough infectious disease screening performed according to the standard criteria of the HFEA.

Good Candidates for Egg Donation

After meeting with your expert fertility specialist at euroCARE IVF, both partners are tested to determine the cause of infertility. If there are poor quality ovaries or eggs, early menopause, unexplained and repeated miscarriages, multiple failed IVF cycles, non-functional reproductive organs or a hereditary genetic disorder, egg donation Cyprus can be the most viable option on your way to pregnancy.

Patients who are battling with ovarian failure due to radiation or chemotherapy treatments for malignancies, past surgery to remove ovaries, or compromised ovulation function related to age are also good candidates for our advanced egg donation programs.

Donor eggs are also used by same-sex male singles and couples in the case of third party reproduction.

Stages of Egg Donation Procedure

1 | Synchronization of Cycles

When frozen embryos aren’t used, it is important to synchronize cycles between you and your donor. While the donor is going through the egg production method, you are given hormones that will prepare your uterus to receive the embryos and support a pregnancy.

2 | Fertility Medications

Estrogens are presented to ensure endometrial growth is at the highest level for embryo transfer. In an IVF cycle, the egg donor will be given fertility medications to stimulate the production of multiple eggs. During this time, her advancement will be assessed by our IVF team, including frequent blood tests and ultrasounds to ensure the eggs are developing successfully. Once the eggs and hormone levels have reached maximum levels, the donor will receive an HCG injection to bring the eggs to final maturity.

3 | Egg Retrieval

Around 36 hours after the HCG injection, the donor will undergo egg retrieval in Cyprus. Follicular aspiration is implicated using a hollow; an ultrasound guided needle, gently removes the eggs from the fluid-filled (follicular) sacs on the ovaries.

4 | Fertilization

As the eggs are retrieved they are immediately sent to a team of embryologists in an IVF laboratory setting where they are identified and prepared for fertilization. The eggs are combined with the partner’s sperm or sperm donation for fertilization. After fertilization and over the next three to five days cell division takes place; the fertilized eggs are now called embryos.

5| Embryo Transfer

Typically, two to five days after egg retrieval, the embryologist sends the final embryology report to the doctor. The embryos (up to 3) are loaded into a needle thin catheter and transferred through the cervix into the intended mother’s uterus. If cryopreservation (freezing) is to take place, it will occur at this point.

6 | After Care Services

The recipient will typically wait an hour in the recovery room and may resume normal activities upon leaving the clinic.  Patients traveling abroad may return home the same day as the transfer.

7 | Pregnancy Test

Typically, 12 days after the embryo transfer in Cyprus, a pregnancy test can be done.

How long will I stay in Cyprus for Egg Donation?

Your stay in Cyprus will be nearly five to seven days long. The exact timing for traveling to Cyprus depends on your donor’s egg collection. If egg collection is at the end of the week, you may need to stay slightly longer for the embryo transfer. It is advisable to arrive in Cyprus at least one day prior to the donor’s egg collection.
